An exotic, rich Chassagne, 2011 Clos St. Jean is laced with apricot, peach, honey, almonds and hazelnuts. The style here is decidedly vinous, an intense wine with considerable textural volume and breadth. The Clos St. Jean emerges from a parcel replanted in 2004, so there will be a lot to look forward to as the vines age.
Anticipated maturity: 2014-2014
Young vines – planted in 2004. Mixed red and white soils. To be bottled in March. Dry and broad with floral aromas coming up on the finish. Less obvious acidity than the Pulignys. Until the end… Still youthful.
Anticipated maturity: 2015-2022
